In the frenzy of attending to assignments and meeting work deadlines in the office, I sometimes take a short break to read an e-book titled Secrets of Fascinating Womanhood. It talks about how to unlock all the love and tenderness in your man, ways to develop your full potential as a woman and how to make your good marriage better. The book shares 10 secrets in a light-hearted, first-person narration style. Very easy to read, the book is however not for feminists or those who are very hard-on about how modern day women deserve and should pursue. The author delves on the traditional root of marriages that worked and sustained our grandparents’ and parents’ marriages for years.
Each chapter ends with a suggestion/assignment for us to practice with our husband. Sincerity, humbleness and a determination to constantly enhance your marriage are keys to success here. Because my husband is one of my blog followers, I’m not going to be specific about the type of assignments (nothing raunchy or SM, I promise! – though every husband would hope so) to protect the authenticity of my effort.
If you want a copy of the e-book, buzz me!
So I was having a casual chat with Hubby the other day and had the urge to find out his best accomplishments so far. Don’t underestimate the power of questions like this; it can actually open up routes to many untapped topics and discoveries about someone.
I thought he would say something along the line of an achievement he obtained at work but no. What I heard next moved my heart and made me see him in a different light up until today:
Him: It would be Ewan.
Me: Really? But I thought you can’t stand him at times?
Him: Just the occasional times when he gets unruly or out of control. But other than that, he’s my highest achievement by far.
Me: Like how? Are you proud of your sperm?
Him: *laugh* Yeah, that also! Seeing him reach his milestones and growing up just makes me feel that we must be doing something right in nurturing him. (Note: I can’t remember his exact words but it’s something along this line)
Can I just boast that I have one of the best husbands in the world, who is brilliant, capable, devoted, loving and supportive? And E has one of the best fathers too, who is calm, child-loving, dynamic, thoughtful and reliable? 😀
